Student Spotlight: Katrina Kincel
Katrina Kincel, student of Dr. Lisa Antoniacci, presents her research of "Sister Chromatid Cohesion in Yeast" with a focus on the histone variant Htz1.
Kristina tested the effects of Htz1 by using both wild and mutant strands of yeast. GFP (green fluorescent protein) was utilized to prove that there was a premature separation of the chromosomes in the mutant cell strands, concluding that the histone variant Htz1is defective in sister chromatid cohesion.
